Due to the high volume of applications, the nature, and the conservancy parks department of the district, Mitte asks you to submit applications at least 3 weeks in advance. This will be valid for July and August. We are in touch with Ms. Teumer and will keep you posted when the required term will be shortened!
The processing of applications for filming / events in the district of Potsdam - Mittelmark is currently around 6 weeks and could increase to a lead time of 6-8 weeks.
The reasons for this are staff shortages with a simultaneous increase in the volume of applications. A first conversation with the district administrator Marco Köhler took place - we'll stay tuned!
FYI: The Te-Damm property (block of flats) on Burgemeisterstraße / Ordensmeisterstraße is unfortunately no longer available for filming until further notice. The responsible district office refers, among other things, to the Misappropriation Act, which is why the management of the property management decided to stop renting to production companies for the time being. We will keep you up to date on the subject.
Due to Corona-related staff shortages and an accreasing application volume at Tempelhof-Schöneberg district, the responsible district office asks for a longer lead time, when submitting applications. If possible, please also avoid making frequent changes to applications, so that the authority can guarantee an overview of the applications.
At the moment the handling of applications that request several film locations at the same time (for the same date) can only be guaranteed to a limited extent. This refers to applications that intend several options in order to enable a very short-term decision for the final film location.
The Berlin Roads and Parks Authority of the district Mitte informs that the area around Pohlstrasse 58 (the dead-end) is very tense. No special use stop has been announced at the moment, but we are asking you to use surrounding streets when applying. No stopping zones in Pohlstrasse should also be avoided.
The Berlin Roads and Parks Authority of the district MItte added a passage to the ancillary provisions of special use permits with immediate effect. This passage is made conditional. You may be asked to provide a necessary evidence to the application process.
Residents complaints about power generators are increasing. Unfortunately, those are often not set up with care by production companies so residents needs to deal with noise as well as odor pollution day and night. As a simple and uncomplicated solution in consulation with the district environment and nature conservation office, the SGA-Mitte of Berlin decided to take this step. Evidence of the requirements can be achieved through the following system certifications:
VERT (Verification of Emission Reduction Technologies - Swiss standards) FAD (Förderkreis Exhaust Aftertreatment Technologies for Diesel Engines) UNECE - Guideline 132 for Retrofit Systems (REC Guideline Level 1, Class 1 and 2)
Due to personnel bottlenecks, the responsible road and green area office of the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district still does not issue permits for filming in public green spaces.
